Venting: Screwy social life dealing with LGS/Candida

Posted by Frustrated on March 20, 2002 at 08:56:57:

Hello all,
I'm a single woman who just started dating again after a several-year hiatus because of illness caused by LGS. Am doing the right things and making great progress. . . BUT, my lifestyle is not very conducive to having laid back, spontaneous fun. If I have to be in bed by 2130 so my liver, adrenals, etc. can rest, it certainly puts a cramp in my social life. Also, the supplement regimen I am on is not conducive to doing too much either. . . I have to either stay close to home or tote the 50 lb. of supplements around with me (a real pain, and I can't always foresee how many doses to pack since I don't know how long I'll be away from home), and, since some of them require refrigeration, that isn't exactly an option either. . . Can anyone else relate to this?? I need someone to talk with about this -- "normal" people can't possibly understand what this lifestyle is like. Thanks.

I had a similar cycle of supplement taking for RA (due to leaky gut and bracing) - I recently did the e-diet and subsequent metabolic type food testing and added permavite to my supplements and I now only have to take a few things to help me through the rest of my intestinal repairs - the $ savings is already enormous and I am much freer. Permavite and bowel builder (in different ways) plug up the holes in your leaky gut so that permeability lessens and one can begin to find relief - you can't take them during the e-diet and subsequent testing phase. There is a lot of info about all these subjects in the archives - a little reading will do it and there are many knowledgeable people here on this board willing to help guide -

good luck - whatever you choose

Thanks, I can't take Permavite because of allergies to ingredients in it. I have been receiving advice from the good people on this board for several months now and following it, which is where I place the credit for the progress I've made. Appreciate your comments.

For sure. It took my husband a while to understand why I'm not drinking alcohol when we go out to dinner. We like to go out on a 'date night' once a week and I know it stretches his patience sometime when he asks me where I want to go eat. I sit there and mentally tick off where I can't go, because of my diet. I guess you could look at it this way: it's one way to find out how tolerant, patient and understanding a person is. :-)

I'm glad you started this thread. We are, after all, human beings. Clinical analysis and opinions are important, for sure, but so are matters of the heart and soul.

I think, though, we really should be true to ourselves and take care of our own personal health issues, or our relationships with those we care about are going to be affected even more, and I don't necessarily mean in a good way. It's a good opportunity for those around us to learn tolerance (hopefully!) and compassion. Ok, I'll get off my soapbox now. :-)

Thanks, Frustrated, for bringing this up.

If the program is done correctly, most people will be normal in less than a year. Since the alternative is to gradually get worse (look at your own history and project it into the future) I do not see that you have any choice. Look at it as an investment.

Back when I first started learning about all this, although I had no symptoms, I put myself on every regimen I was learning to suggest to my patients. I had to know if it was possible for anyone to do and how hard it might be--------as well as whether the grocery facilities, etc., were available for them to actually do it. As I learned more and better regimens, I always tried them on myself before suggesting them to any patients!

The large co-op in Lexington exists mainly because of my efforts and the flood of patients I sent there for help.

One cannot live in a vacuum for long.

Hope this helps.

Walt in my case oatmeal did the trick and in my hound
yogurt, tripe, and cayenne fixed him. In his case it took
time and though each thing worked in a day I wasn't doing
the suffering and could only go by signs and the ones that
tripe and cayenne helped were minor and I could live with
them and he was doing good but I wanted him as good as he
could be. I have learned to try anything that sounds
reasonable and seems like it has a chance.

I just heard about charcoal and giving it a try on me
and my hounds. If it Does remove toxins and Can extend life
span that would be great. I am still questioning how and am
not giving or taking it every day but if it does work
sometimes is better than never and in my case with being
poisoned by chemicals it may help a lot.

Thanks, Vince.

Activated charcoal does carry out certain toxins. However it also carries out other stuff so it is not a good idea to use it for years.

Walt, I never take anything for very long or often unless
It is doing something I notice and need but then I think
about or look into any adverse effects that it might cause
and weigh if I can live with the possible effects or damage
that might shorten my life if using a drug or any med. I
listen to everything I hear about an item once I get
interested and try to understand how it could work and what
Other things it can help. I have read that charcoal can
absorb many things even venom from stings and bites and
the oils from poison plants when applied topically which is
very interesting if true.
